Hello Everyone,

I have downloaded the Gambia's DHS2013 and currently trying to analysis it. I am interested in the predictors of HIV prevalence in the Gambia.

To do that, I first merge the GMIR with the GMAR datasets to get the HIV testing results for women and I similarly merged GMMR and the the GMAR datasets. The two newly created datasets were appended to hive the hivtests datasets for men and women. For example:
1.In the men dataset, I did:
keep mv001 mv002 mv003 mv012
rename mv001 v001
rename mv002 v002
rename mv003 v003
rename mv012 v012
gen long id=((1000+v001)*10000)+(v002*100)+v003
gen gender="men"

2.Women dataset:
keep v001 v002 v003 v012
gen long id=((1000+v001)*10000)+(v002*100)+v003
gen gender="women"

I appended the above two which give rise to a dataset( Gender included). For the HIV test dataset, I kept id hiv03 hiv05.

Finally merged the the new dataset which has gender included with HIV dataset:

use "C:\Users\IHP0015\Desktop\Gambia_Stata\menwomen.DTA", clear
merge 1:1 id using "C:\Users\IHP0015\Desktop\Gambia_Stata\hiv.DTA"

The next attempt is to attempt to replicate some of the tables in the Gambia DHS report but to my dismay, all of the figures I produced were close but different.

Does anyone have an idea for the way forward?
